Scott Club Concert Series

The Scott Club Concert Series provides 3 concerts each year during the spring and fall, featuring a pianist at the Scott Club Everett Concert Grand piano, typically accompanied by a musician on another instrument. The series is a collaboration between the Scott Club and Foundry Hall and the type of music varies for each concert. The concerts are free and open to all in order to make live music available in the lovely Scott Club building, which is a Michigan Historic Site. Concerts have been funded in part by grants from Entergy Palisades Power Plant and The Greater South Haven Area Community Foundation. Currently, concerts are hybrid, both in-person and virtual on Twitch and Facebook Live and later posted on YouTube. Current information is available at www.scottclub.org.

Scott Club holds a book discussion each month throughout the year. Books are selected by members on a wide variety of topics. The discussions are free and open to all. Normally discussions are held at the Scott Club building, but due to the pandemic are currently held via Zoom. Current information is available at www.scottclub.org.

Originally organized as a reading circle, the South Haven Scott Club has a rich history of interest in and focus on literature. In 1900, the Scott Club bought the Antiquarian Society of South Haven interest in the building on Feb 28 and the South Haven Literary and Library interest on Apr 19, in each case for considerations, including “…upon the express condition that said premises be always owned and held for literary purposes forever for the benefit of the people of South Haven.” Thus, literature and authors are a continuing presence in the offerings of the organization.

Adults

The South Haven Scott Club holds programs normally on a bimonthly basis, covering a wide variety of topics and also providing entertainment. Programs focus on arts and culture and include authors, musicians, representatives of various cultural groups, topics on area history, typically a student group such as the history club, and more. The events include a formal program, followed by an opportunity for fellowship with refreshments. Programs are free and open to all. Currently programs are hybrid - both in-person and virtual via Zoom. The schedule and program information are available at www.scottclub.org.

In August, 2019, the Scott Club participated in the community-wide Kids Collaborative by hosting a music and writing workshop for children. Several South Haven organizations participated in this initiative designed to offer a variety of summer developmental opportunities to youth along with financial assistance as needed to ensure availability to all.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goals of the South Haven Scott Club are to preserve the Scott Club building, a Michigan historic site, and provide arts and cultural programming to residents of and visitors to South Haven and nearby communities.

The organization has a Building and Grounds Committee that recommends building maintenance and improvement projects to the Board, and oversees their implementation.

The organization also has a Program Committee that solicits input, arranges for programs and conducts feedback surveys.

The South Haven Scott Club is all-volunteer and relies on its diverse membership and friends to progress various initiatives.

The Scott Club Building and Grounds Committee are experienced and successfully guided and completed the following improvement projects:
- Climate and Ground Floor Repair Project in 2022, which replaced a 30-year-old furnace, added air-conditioning, revamped the duct work, increased electrical service, installed new lighting and carpeting and repainted.
- Accessibility Improvement Project in 2022-2023, expanded and renovated the bathroom to make it wheelchair accessible, installed new cabinetry, flooring and fixtures in the kitchen prep area, and widened the ground floor doorway to better facilitate wheelchair entry.
- Literary Hall Refresh in 2023, replaced worn carpeting in the upper level where programs and concerts are held, and improved the audio/visual system used for programs.
Since the addition of air-conditioning, programs are not offered year around.
The organization desired to make the entire building accessible and will have architectural work progress later in 2024 to plan and design installation of an elevator, and get bids for that work.
